Dumb Mothers

I really hate to see dumb mothers. And did I see a stupid one today!
I was in a parking lot that has areas of grass. You must keep in mind that thousands of people walk across this grass all day long. There is also a pet store nearby, so we can assume that some pets would also be walking and doing other pet activit ies. This stupid bitch had her toddler laid out on the grassy area with no blanket underneath him. Oh, I knew he was a boy because all of his private boy parts were shining for all the world and any pervert child molester to see or photograph. The poor baby had both hands over his eyes trying to block the sun.
What really pissed me off was this lovely mother had a perfect gas guzzling SUV with the door open right at her back. Was she afraid of getting the set wet? What exactly was the issue? I'll have to go with stupidity.
When I see things like this I wonder why on earth some people are blessed with the gift of children.

Niftee Fiftees Car Show ~ 2010

Well, hello beautiful Challenger!!!

 We went to the car show tonight. It was great to get out of the house after the procedure on my back Thursday. I didn't take Snakebite tonight as I just didn't think I was ready to handle him yet. And that's a lot for a Harley chick to admit - but I think wise. So I guess you all know where this is leading...yes, that's right...I rode bitch. Hey, at least I was on two wheels and not stuck in the four fenders. Big Daddys Ultra does come in handy at times.

 My back is screaming but my mind is happy. It was fun to see the old familiar faces of the people who own the cars.  It was a great opening to the Saturday night Niftee Fiftee's car show.  Can't wait for the many weeks to come until the season ends in November. 

Easter ~ 2010

Easter ~ 2010

Tomorrow morning is Easter. I guess Easter doesn't mean much to people who do not follow a certain religion. When my kids were little we celebrated Easter with the Easter bunny coming and leaving a basket overnight, and on Easter day we had an Easter Egg hunt. But it was never related to religion.

When I was growing up we were very active in the Baptist church, therefore, our Easter celebrations included both the religious celebration at church and the non-traditional celebrations at home. We would get a special Easter dress that usually seemed to consist of some material that scratched our skin in some form or another. But they were always very pretty. We would wear those cute white socks with the ruffled lace at the top. And off we would go to church to see everyone else's dresses and the boys new shirts. There was always picture taking. Not so unusual today when everywhere you look there is the snap of some device, but in those days using film was a special occasion. Of course my sister and I much preferred the home celebration as it included the colored eggs and candy. It was so fun to color the eggs! We would put the little tablets in the vinegar and watch it fizz, then add the hot water and wait to drop in the eggs. We just loved writing on the eggs with the crayon and bringing it out of the water to see that in that spot there was not color and you could read the message. What fun!

As we got older we repeated these same things with our kids, never missing an Easter together. The amount of chocolate we to could put away was amazing. Talk about sugar overdose. We ate as much as the kids.

This is my 7th Easter without my sister here on earth. Although things are different now, I'm so glad that we made the most of the time we had. Living and laughing.

She left several rolls of film that were undeveloped. A few months after her passing I received a package in the mail with a note. It was a picture in a frame. Her husband had developed the film and found this very interesting photo. I have no idea what we were doing this day, perhaps it was close to Easter, or perhaps we were just being silly as usual.

But one thing is for sure, you never know when you will find bunny ears or another type of adornment on my head. And thank the higher power and my sister for that fact!
